    Real time weather information generated from the technology will benefit growers from the west midlands area.

    This information will empower growers with decision making tools to manage risks and boost the profitability of their grain production business.

    WMG will assist with providing direction on how to use this information more effectively.

    In total, more than 1,000 growers will be engaged in the project throughout the WA wheatbelt.

    The funding for the technology was made possible by the eConnected Grainbelt Royalties for Regions project, which is part of the Seizing the Opportunity in Agriculture initiative led by the Department of Agriculture and Food WA.

    The weather station and soil moisture probe will be installed before the start of the 2016 growing season at the WMG main trial site at Brennan’s property on the corner of North West Rd and the Dandaragan Moora Rd.
